Hello Zarlynn, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if doing a system restore using a restore point dated before this happened may be able to fix this for you.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Without a restore point to go back to how the computer was at that date, then you might try using the LNK download option in the tutorial below to see if it may help. It will restore the default shortcut associations.
